EBGL 10x10 Challenge Announced!
Mar 16, 2017
The EBGL is excited to present something to keep members focused when there is no focus; a challenge when everything seems too easy and you find yourself playing games like Magic: the Gathering; and an even better reason to stay up past your bedtime every two weeks than "my family doesn't play games"...a League 10x10 Gaming Challenge!
The challenge is for the entire League (as a group) to play 10 organizer-selected games a total of 10 times each before the awards night on November 10th, 2017. Each member does not have to play 10 games 10 times to win - this is an all or nothing challenge for the entire League!
To make this challenge even more...err...challenging...game plays only count if they are played at EBGL Events! Information, conditions, and awards are posted in the member forums, here.
Happy gaming everyone!

EBGL's Luck Fest 2017 Announced!
Feb 13, 2017
The EBGL is excited to announce a brand new Spring Special Event: Luck Fest!
This new gaming tournament event debuts in March 2017, replacing the Point Pentathlon Event every second year (i.e. in years where there are no Olympics), and is for League Members only. Luck Fest, unlike any other EBGL event, will be focused 100% on each player's luck instead of strategy and skill. Absolutely EVERYTHING will be random - and we're not kidding! Even one of the event achievements is for winning the random achievement draw...
Registration for the 2017 Luck Fest opens on Sunday, March 5th. More details are posted in the forums, here.
Best of "luck" to everyone!
